Windows Server 2012 R2 – IIS6 install state

Posted on Updated on

In troubleshooting some ConfigMgr 2012 R2 web service point configuration problems in my home environment, I was having real problems trying to locate the install status of IIS6 Metabase and Compatibility components within the Server Manager GUI.  Ultimately I turned to PowerShell to get the answer I needed.

Import-Module servermanager

Get-WindowsFeature -Name *metabase*

Get-WindowsFeature -Name *compat*


(in fact, I’m still trying to find this information in the GUI for server manager! thank you PowerShell!!)

    Hey Nick,
    I found them in Server manager (though the powershell cmds you listed are cooler). Under the IIS Role, you can find these in the Roles and Features area. If I filter for “compat” it shows these 2 if they are already installed.
